Pink Caterpillar

This tiny pink caterpillar moved in inchworm fashion and was particularly interested in the pollen/nectar of my Coreopsis flower. About 3/8″ in length, really tiny.

Dear sankax,
While we cannot tell you the species, this Inchworm or Spanworm is the caterpillar of a moth in the family Geometridae.

  1. I just found one of these. I see green ones, floating around on their silk all the time. But today is the first time I have ever seen a red one floating down to the ground on a strand of silk. I love to catch the inch worms. But was afraid to touch the red one. LOL
